The cost of sending a student to an oversubscribed Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) can be immense. EDLounge works with units to help curb the numbers and help schools work closely with families to help learners in a different location make progress. Learners and their families can see online 'idle time' versus 'work time', while learners follow the school's curriculum.
EDLounge can be set up within minutes for any student on 6th-day provision without fuss. Find out More
The system can be used prior to Alternative Provision by offering:
- remote learning
- 'Virtual' learning
- off-site learning
- core, academic and vocational learning
- catch-up learning
- whole school provision
EDLounge can be used in a range of ways, not just for isolation, exclusion, 6th-day provision, detention and behaviour. Please View our Alternative Provision page

EDLounge Ltd. works with schools to achieve the best outcome for all its learners. We offer suites of lessons leading to qualifications in a number of different areas:
- Functional Skills
Improving Whole School Attendance by Meeting the Needs of the School and of Learners
Almost all schools want to improve attendance. We can certainly help. We work together with schools to increase their attendance using our virtual learning platform. Increasing your attendance can be achieved in various ways with learners with different issues. More available on our attendance page
The EDLounge platform helps improve behaviour, starting with learners who are in isolation, doing focused learning based on the school's long term plans, where all work is marked by our staff and learners receive feedback. Learners can also work through the appropriate behaviour repair lessons, covering swearing, assault on learners, low-level disruption, damage to property and much more.
Learners who are excluded follow the same ethos except they are in a virtual classroom from home: following a timetable, they can see and speak with a tutor as they work. They will cover mandatory e-safety lessons, Child Protection, Prevent and British values lessons. Learners continue their timetabled lessons from a range of subjects chosen by you. All work is monitored, as well as "idle" time. All od this informs a comprehensive report for the learner's re-integration meeting.
Find out more about our behaviour lessons on our behaviour page.
Schools really don't want to exclude learners. Ideally, learners need to be in school, learning.
Unfortunately, sometimes schools need to exclude learners, and this can be detrimental to the school and the learner. Schools don't want to lose attendance marks, they don't want the learner to stop following the curriculum, and not to achieve the best grades to give them the best chance in the future.
We can help with this, by being able to put your learner on a seat quickly, with safeguarding tools for increased protection while they are not on school premises. Please visit the Exclusion page for more information.
EDLounge has an outstanding homework tool. You can set deadlines, monitor who has started and finished, but we also have something over and above our competitors: teachers have access to our library of over 12000 lessons to support learning. Teachers at EDLounge will mark the work and give learners feedback. More information at homework page
No need to run around school collecting work for learners during lesson time, or emailing all teachers requesting work. You could put EDLounge into isolation and follow curriculum-based learning in line with the school's learning cycle. You can keep track of time worked by each individual throughout the day, as well as lessons completed, and even better - this work is marked by our teachers at EDLounge and the learner is given feedback, easing the workload on your teachers. Find out more on the isolation page
Mental Health can be unpredictable. At EDLounge we pride ourselves on our knowledge of mental health issues and we look at the best ways to help support learners, and in turn, schools. EDLounge gives learners the freedom to work and engage on their stronger days. We aim to support learners to build strength, self-esteem and confidence in their education, taking steps to return eventually to school, however long this may take. Have a look at our 'Stepping stones back to education' on our mental health page.
